Venonat is covered with large purple fur. The feet of Venonat are brown and are about half as long as Venonat itself. Venonat have two white antennae that stick out of their head. The most notable feature of Venonat is their large red eyes. It also has a small nose just under its eyes.
Venonat can have the ability Compoundeyes or the ability Tinted Lens. Compoundeyes increases Venonat's accuracy by 30%. Tinted Lens increases the power of not-very-effective moves by 1.5x. Venonat's eyes are very accurate: they enable Venonat to easily catch extremely small prey. Conway has one in the episode Camping it Up.
Venonat evolves into Venomoth at level 31.
